  • Hi,

    I'm back to using Strava  after I found the first Watch release buggy. I'm now using the latest v4.9.0 on IPhone 5 and  Watch OS2 Well done on a great update for Apple watch! Only one problem I had after my first run is that I can't seem to stop my activity directly from the watch after a run. The watch screen seem hang on "auto-pause" I tried both force touch and swiping left, but to no avail. I ended up completing/stopping the run on my phone, which works fine. Is this normal, or a glitch?

    I've only had one run with v4.9, but enjoy the following features:

    • layout seems bigger and better, with all the relevant info displayed on single screen. Other apps require tapping or swiping to get to stats, which is a tough in the middle of a run with sweaty fingers
    • heartrate reads well...I just love the detail with the animated graphic
    • touch on UI is smooth and responsive
    • notification mirror for milestones works a charm, and disappears automatically leaving you back on the run screen on next wrist raise

    I don't have any duplicate entries in the health app, and my runs contribute to my workout ring in the activity app. 

    Keep up the good work!

  • "Danno - Only activities recorded with the Apple Activity App register in the activity rings."

    @Jeremy - Subtle difference, but I believe it's only activities that write to the Activity App register in the activity rings. For example, the current version of the RunKeeper app, writes to both the Activity and Health apps, and thus increments the ring totals for the day.

    Do you have any guidance on your (Strava) watch screenshots on the App Store? It shows both a "Split" view and an "Avg Pace" view. How do I toggle between them on my watch?

    Thanks!

  • @Roger Muller: I had the same problem on my commute this morning. The watch was stick in auto-pause, and I could not end the ride. Even after several minutes! (I had to wait for a subway train, and I tried again to end the workout once I was on board.) I was hoping this was just a one-off weird bug, but the fact that someone experienced it as well makes that unlikely. In my case I had to hard-reboot the watch, uninstall the Strava watch app, and then reinstall the watch app to recover. If that's going to happen repeatedly, I'd say the Strava app is too buggy to be useful.

  • Looks like the app updated this morning and includes Watch OS2 HRM now. About to go take for a spin. BRB!

  • Was very excited to see that Strava has added Heart  Rate Monitoring directly from the watch. I just got back from a lunch run and the first time using the new update. Issues:

     

    1) Could not stop run from Watch. The Watch app froze. 

    2) HR data not showing up in Phone App or Website. So, does this mean that the App does not record the heart rate information...it only shows it on the watch? A little disappointing if that is the case.

  • "Since the Strava Watch app only receives heart rate samples from HealthKit when the UI is visible, you'll need to tap the Strava icon on your watch home screen and then Stop and Finish the activity to ensure the heart rate data is sent to the iPhone."

    It looks to me like the problem here is not the HR monitor itself being interrupted by other watch events, but the communication between the watch and the app on the phone. Would it be possible to forgo the realtime display of the HR data, and just pull the HR information across from the watch at the end of the activity? To be quite honest I rarely look at my watch when I'm actually riding, and not being able to rely on it for alerts from my phone is a major problem.

  • Well, I had high hopes for the latest update. Sadly, Strava has dashed them. The new watch app worked fine for the first few workouts, but now it won't let me finish an activity. That has happened the last three rides, and the only way I've found to recover is hard reboot the watch. Two rides started from the watch and one started from the iPhone. Interestingly, all the rides were recorded successfully, so they're on Strava if the developer can learn anything from them. For me, I'll go back to Motifit. Maybe I'll try the next release. The worst part is that I just renewed my annual premium membership. Definitely having second thoughts.

  • I was excited to see the update! I did a ride yesterday with the new native Strava app. It never synced a heart rate, but I learned later on that I needed to give Strava permission to access the heart rate sensor. A test a moment ago had Strava reading my heart rate, although the lag after I raise the watch and before the number appears may be a little problematic. 

    Also, although I really like having all information on the screen at once compared to Apple's native app that makes me swipe (impossible while riding a bike and/or wearing gloves), I wouldn't pick Average Speed to take a huge front/center spot. I want the distance traveled and heart rate to be more prominent. Some simple customization options (similar to the Modular face) would be very nice.

    (For that matter, how crazy is it to suggest actually using the modular face? Is it possible to put my heart rate into a complication?)

    Another concern I have is with battery life. Seems the heart rate sensors get turned on whenever the Strava app is open.  I like to do a few long (100km+) rides every summer and I'm sure the watch won't survive that long. Can the sensor be turned off for long rides?

     

     

    Still, a great step forward. I am thrilled not to have to start both Strava and Apple Workout and still meet my daily fitness goals (that part worked beautifully yesterday).

  • So I am happy to say that the update worked properly. The app functions very similarly to my Wahoo Fitness Runfit app. I especially like the feature at each mile run that compares last mile pace to average pace.

    I was nervous that heart rate wouldn't be saved since it wasn't appearing on the phone screen for Strava during the run. But when I synced at the end I was able to see heart rate data and suffer score.

    It's nice to have all the data in one screen on the watch. On Runfit I have to constantly swipe and the audio cues are useless. This will keep me as a premium user for the foreseeable future!

  • HELP...! Updated to the new Strava version, but can't sign in to Strava now because when I try to sign in via Facebook (the way I always do it) it's not working. 'Fault registering, invalid' is the message I receive. I tried to log in via Google or e-mail, but because my original sign in was via Facebook, that doesn't work... Already tried reinstall, but doesn't help. What should I do?

  • Hi, My 10km race with Strava on Apple Watch this morning was an absolute disaster 😤. Hit record when the starter's pistol went off, only to have the app hanging for most of the first kilometer of the race. Eventually forced-closed the app, but had to zap out my phone in the end to get things recording. Then I discover that my main view shows split time and not current pace. How that changed from yesterday's maiden run with the app, i'm yet to figure out. Needless to say, I was unsettled and had no idea how to pace myself from there onward. It also appeared as if both the watch and phone was recording sepearate activties, as my exercise goal was achieved in half the time. At times during the race, the watch screen was greyed out, as if it was struggling to retrieve the latest data. The normal problem of not stopping at the end of the race made sure my race ended on a proper anti-climax. Then it seemed that something was running in the background for hours and ended up recording a three hour run, which drained the battery to almost zero. Here are some screen shots I took after the race(order might be reversed): The first pic shows the screen when swiping to the left of the main screen. Pressing stop here does not function. The second screenshot appeared several minutes later, but was also unresponsive when I hit "finish". Final pic show the split measure. How can this be set/toggled to current pace? I was very hopeful that this app would be THE APP for my running/training, and was planning to go premium if my race today went well, but I guess my search for a decent app is far from over.

  • I have now used the new update several times. Overall I like the new display and interface. But there is one issue that will be a deal breaker for me, which I think you need to fix quickly.

    I ride with a heart rate monitor chest strap paired with Strava via bluetooth. I have no need for the watch's hear rate monitoring. But there is no way for me to turn it off! And it is using up my watch's battery at a quick rate. Any long bicycle ride will drain the watch's battery.

    If Strava detects a bluetooth connected hear rate monitor, it should turn off the watch's heart rate monitoring automatically - but nope, it keeps it going. I've tried (in the Health app)  to turn off allowing Strava to read the heart rate - but nope, Strava still has the heart rate monitor on continuously. There's no way to turn it off. This is bad.

    One related problem. I did the following:

    1. Started the iPhone app, and put it to sleep.
    2. Started the Watch app and started my activity from the watch.
    3. On the watch I switched out of the Strava app back to to the clock display - activity continued tracking.
    4. On the iPhone, I ended the activity and saved it.
    5. On the watch, the strava app kept running (in the background?) with the heart rate monitor continuously on. This would have stayed on forever I believe until the battery ran out.
    6. I had to open up the strava app on the Watch again to get it to realize that the activity was finished, and when I exited the app the heart rate monitory finally switched off.

    For those people having problems with activities not starting, or getting hung, or not ending ... I used to be very frustrated because I would encounter these problems also. But I no longer do, as I have picked up nuggets of recommendations from this and other threads. I always do the following:

    1. Start the Strava app on the iPhone, and leave it running.
    2. Have audio cues for Starting, Stopping, and Pausing turned on, so I can hear and confirm that my activity is recording, pausing, and continuing correctly.
    3. Turn off WiFi (swipe up from bottom, and touch the WiFi button to turn it off). I learned this trick only from reading the new release beta thread - Strava, you should make this information more available. Supposedly if the phone/watch detects any WiFi (passing a restaurant or other business with WiFi available), the phone may try to ask whether to connect, and everything gets hung.
    4. Put the iPhone to sleep, leaving the Strava app running in the foreground. Tuck the phone away in a pocket or saddle bag for the duration of the activity.
    5. Start the Strava app on the Watch.
    6. Start the activity and listen for the audio cue confirming that the iPhone app has started tracking the activity.
    7. Continue the activity using only the Watch, monitoring the statistics and pausing and continuing as necessary.
    8. At the end of the activity, pause it (via the Watch).
    9. Pull out the iPhone, turn the phone on, and do the final termination of the activity from the phone, where you can edit the Title and/or Description as part of saving the activity.

    I rarely have problems. Sometimes things are a bit slow, and it takes a bit to update the display, but that's a general Watch issue.

    Hope that helps. And Strava, please fix the watch heart rate monitoring problem, and allow it to be turned off!!!!

  • @Rick Bolling: I'm glad you found something that works for you, but if Strava seriously expects users to go through such a convoluted 9-step process just to use the watch app, they're frankly crazy.

  • Well I stay in the west coast of Scotland so not many chances for people like me to get out but managed a wee 10mile today and I had not a single issue! I opened the strava app on my iPhone put it on my Quad Lock holder and started a ride on my watch, it even auto paused as I had to climb over a fallen tree then off we went and came home and my data was there! Here's hoping it wasn't beginners luck! Lol

  • Attempted to record a ride and then switch to run this morning. Once complete the event was recorded wholly as a run. This had the unintended consequence of awarding me a new 10K PB.

    Running latest iOS apps etc. Thanks for finally bringing HR data out of the watch.

  • I've just installed the updated Strava app updated 2nd December 2015. It says it supports heart rate on the Apple Watch. I found the recent app to be buggy.

    The heart rate monitor worked once, but when I exited the Strava app on my watch, the Apple Watch heart rate monitor was still switched on for about 20 seconds!

    Now it doesn't take readings at all / not switching the heart rate monitor on.

  • Follow up comment to my last post.

    When I actually began to run the heart rate monitor worked (or appeared to monitor my heart rate). What is VERY annoying was that the app asks you to confirm their terms and conditions the moment you hit to start your run!!! What a ridiculous time to ask someone to read your T&C's!!

  • I hope @Jeremy can respond to the question raised by @Rick Bolling. I have the same issue.

    I used v4.9.0 once so far with the watch, and it worked well (*much* more responsive, no endless delays, etc). The battery hit on a 60 minute ride (about 18%) was roughly the same as when I use the Apple Workout app. That' fine for a short ride, but I'd like a way to continue override with a chest strap for longer rides, as the app functioned previously. Perhaps there's a way to do this that's not obvious?  

    Thanks!

  • New app update in the App Store. Would be great to hear feedback if anyone is running tonight on the heart rate monitor functionality and battery life.

  • I tried Rick Bolling's pause on the watch and terminate the app on the phone method. Worked fine for the Strava workout but left the watch thinking that I was still working out. At the end of the day I had a six hour marathon recorded in the Apple workout app. According to Workouts driving into town, tidying up the house and cooking are about the same intensity as cycling up a 400m elevation hill.

    I've had the 'terms and conditions' thing happen twice, both after having deleted and reinstalled the app.

  • Is there something I'm missing? I got a prompt the other night the allow Strava to access the heart rate data via HealthKit but I'm not getting any heart rate data whatsoever. When I look at my watch, I can see the little heart icon animating. I can see my ride information and everything, but I just do not get heart rate data at the end. 

    Is there a trick to make this work? Some sort of magical combination of start/stop/device trickery that I'm supposed to be doing? Would love to have this data for my rides, but seems like it's still a LOT of work to make that happen.

  • Rick - 

    There isn't a good way to turn off HR recording on the Watch. One issue is that other sensors don't seem to be included for activities started on the Watch because the calibrating process doesn't have enough time to talk to a BTLE sensor. I've seen that with cycling speed and cadence sensors and think I know how to fix it. To see the chest strap heart rate on the watch, you could pair the chest strap with the Watch under Settings > Bluetooth.  Apple designed it that way so people could use HR chest straps with their Watch Workout app. Paring the strap this way with the watch is definitely the best approach right now -- it might even help the Watch improve the LED sensor accuracy.

    Jamey -

    Have you enabled "Workouts" in your Health Settings?

    The watch does start to take your heart rate measurements when you start your activity and start running. I too thought that there was a problem because when you just simply open the app on the Apple Watch the heart rate monitor symbol is just spinning and doesn't record any data. However, when you start running or cycling, the heart rate monitor starts recording.

  • So....

    First run, I got nothing for heart rate. 

    Second Run, it worked perfect 

    Then today after the new update...see attached image...

  • There is a new Apple Watch update available as of today. Watch OS 2.1.

    I wonder if Strava based their new heart rate update on the new Watch OS.

    Updating might help resolve this.

  • Jeremy,

    Yes, I have workouts enabled. I've gone on 4 rides today, started and stopped from the watch on all of them. The only one that actually "worked" was a 3.5 mile ride. My ride back was exactly 3 miles and it kinda worked, it only recorded the last mile or so of data. Is there a distance threshold or something that needs to be hit before it stores data? All my shorter rides it just shows me the "Get a Sensor" message. My 3+ mile rides seem to start working at some point, but not consistently.

     

    Ben,
    Yes, I got it to kinda work on one of my rides. Seems to only work once I pass a 3 mile threshold or something. The shorter rides it doesn't detect at all and shows me the "Get a Sensor" message, meaning it didn't even pick up a connection, or at least that's what I'm assuming.

    I'm going to try and update to WatchOS 2.1 and see if that fixes it. I've got a 2 miler to get home in a few hours. Fingers crossed.

  • I've had a problem where the watch continues to think that I'm exercising, even though I've stopped the Strava recording. Only later do I notice the green running man status icon at the top of the watch face and see that I've managed 3 hours of exercise and 1500 calories (the chance would be a fine thing). Due to the Apple Health apps limitations it's impossible to correct the bad data as it would involve deleting 1000+ individual data entries. Other sessions have been fine, but these incidents happened when the watch needed to go into power reserve and when the app had been recently updated.

  • I much prefer the updated watch interface for Strava. The app is also quicker to respond to glancing at the time. Possible Issue: I'm finding that the HR function is often skipping sections of data, leaving straight horizontal lines. Enhancement Request: enable customization of data fields on the watch.

  • Hi,

    I'm happy to report that v4.9.1 seem to have killed all of the pesky bugs I've experienced. Had a short run yesterday with NO hanging after start, stopped and finished the run without any glitches. After the run, the app closed properly, so no extended workouts recorded post-run. Heart-rate still working fine too. Just one question: can the split measure be changed to current pace at all?

    Thanks for the uodate!

  • Just used it for the first time after upgrading to 2.1 last night. Worked perfectly on a run in Boston while listening to Bluetooth headphones. Only problem was at the end of the run when I went to finish: the watch asked me to log in to the Strava app on my phone. I went to the app and hit the finish line button there. Not sure what happened.
    HR looked to be very accurate for the run. First mile split looks odd and average pace doesn't really add up with the super slow first mile.

    Does the app auto pause automatically when I'm stopped?

    Thx!
